santorum would have been out of there. romney had to move to the right to nail down the nomination. it made it more difficult, more awkward for him to go back toward the center to win a general election. if you are going to say two issues -- one of them might not be fair. the automobile bailout, i do not know how much of that was political and conservatives not liking government interference and how much of it was a harvard business school, harvard law our school -- harvard law school thinking that that would have been a better long-term route for the auto companies that may not have been political, that you them go bankrupt. the other thing is the politicization. you cannot tell me that the mitt romney from 3 or four years ago would have had any intention to go as strident as you did on immigration and how badly the heard him the look and how he performs. -- that hurt him when you look at how he performed. one percentage point more of the vote this time than in 2008 was made up of -- he ended up getting 71.27. you look at that and say, wow. that was an enormous mistake. the second thing th
santorum. good evening, senator. how are you? >> i'm doing graleat. how are you? >> we'll get to the fiscal cliff in a moment. first i want to ask you about david petraeus, certainly one of the greater men in my lifetime and a man of modern history. what do you feel about what's happened? >> well, it's very disturbing to be in a position like the director of the central intelligence agency. we all have our personal failings, and none of us are perfect, but to put yourself in that type of position and engage in activity which is -- could compromise your ability to do your job is something that is very, very disturbing and shows incredibly poor judgment, not just, obviously, for breaking his marital vows but for putting himself in a position that could compromise the agency. that is really very disturbing. that's the only way i can put it that he would engage in such conduct. >> there will be some people watching this, as they always do when these sort of sex scandals break who say, what will we do about his ability to do his skw job? what would you say in this case? >> this is a man who had
senator rick santorum who battled mitt romney deep into the primary, former governor mike huckabee who ran for president four years ago and the past two republican running mates, congressman paul ryan and former alaska governor sarah palin. as for the democrats, the vice president keeps dropping hints of running again for president. here's joe biden from election day. >> next time goug to vote for yourself? >> i don't think so. >> even though she keeps saying no to running, there are tons of democrats who hope secretary of state hillary clin will eventually say yes. as for the new names, keep your eyes on maryland governor martin o'malley and new york governor andrew cuomo. now i can keep going. we don't have the time. if you think i'm jumping the gun, listen to this reputable guy. >> the political news junkies like me, it's never too early to think about ohio, new hampshire, and all the rest. >> reporter: call this the beginnings of the preseason when white house contenders write books, start up packs, campaign for fellow candidates and start building up friends in the early primary and c
of south dakota, former governor jeb bush of florida, former senator rick santorum. former governor mike huckabee who ran for president four years ago and the past two republican running mates, congressman paul ryan and former alaska governor sarah palin. as for the democrats the vice president keeps dropping hints of running again for president. here's joe biden from election day. >> are you going to vote for yourself today? >> i don't think so. >> and even though she keeps saying no to running there are hopes that secretary of state hillary clinton will eventually say yes. as for new names keep your eyes on martin o'malley and governor andrew cuomo. i can keep going, but i don't have time. if you think i'm jumping the gun, listen to this political guy. >> for news junkies like me it's never too early to think about iowa and new hampshire and all of the rest. >> when pos contenders write books, start candidates and build friends early in the caucus states. randi? >> thank you very much. >>> several veterans who served in iraq and afghanistan are celebrating their 2012 victory. in fact,
. think back to march, when rick santorum looked to have an edge over mitt romney and before the president started campaigning. safe the say a lot has changed since then, but safe to say that a lot hanlt changeded since then. as the president begins his second term, the balance of power in congress, same old, same old and his approval rating, got a poll just taken before election day, and it shows that his rating sit at 51%. back where it was in march. in just over two hour, president obama is going to address the nation from the east room and our brianne keilar joins us from the white house. i don't know what the president has on his agenda, whether there is an agenda for what he's going to say, whether we're going to hear about petraeus, allen, ben gadsy, all of the above, none of the above. what is it? >> i would say all of the above and really, it's sort of what is on the agenda of the reporters who will be asking questions. you said it's been more than eight months since the full length press conference. the president did have an abbreviated one in june at the g-20 in mexico. he had a
robberies yesterday. >> san santorum -- san jose police are looking for a man involved in a shooting. it happened at 9:00 last night. police say this is san jose's 42nd homicide of the year. >> in oakland, police are investigating the city's 109th 109th homicide of the year. is happened at 1:00 a.m. the oakland tribune roortz 27-year-old man died. neighbors called police after hearing gunfire. police have mo suspect or motive. >>> a final return home today for a san jose marine who was shot and killed by palm springs police. the family of 22-year-old corporal allen da iv iana is bringing his body back to san jose. he was shot and killed during a confrontation with police inside a parking garage saturday morning. police say he was shot when he stepped on the gas, hitting one officer and dragging another. a burial mass will be held on wednesday at our mother of perpetual help church in los gatos. >> rockets crisscross the sky as israel bombards the gaza strip. militants are firing back. a decision about a ground invasion could come any time. here's the latest. reporter: on this fourth
in the republican primary, mitt romney, rick santorum, michele bachmann et cetera those policies are not going to win over hispanics. they're not going to win over asian americans. >> jennifer: you are not going to see i predict a super pac that is a pro-choice republican super pac though, right? that's an issue they won't touch. >> i believe that abortion is an issue that they will not touch. they -- they saw what happens when you anger women voters in this country independents, republicans and democrats but abortion i think -- the republican party is not there yet. i don't know if they will ever get there. >> jennifer: well instead of republican moderates, shouldn't we just issue democratic cards to the membership, cards to the democratic party? i don't see how they're going to do it. you have mayor bloomberg's super pac on gun control. do you think he and that pac have enough clout to push president obama to come out with a national gun policy much less their own republicans? >> the super pac alone mayor bloomberg's in this
had not had a super pac which would have been running against rick santorum. if your hillary clinton or andrew cuomo, not saying these people are running, but jeb bush, marco rubio, pick your candidate -- it is not about could we win iowa, could we build a grass-roots campaign? what is your platform? not saying this candidates will not have to do that, but if you do not have a super pac game that is huge you are not going to be able to win your party nomination. that is it really disturbing trend. >> in any given competitive congressional campaign in the country the candidate committee, the actual campaign of the guy running for office or the woman running for office, has the smallest voice in the race with regard to the outside groups. it is increasingly true in senate races. it is increasingly true even in the presidential race. a brief follow up to that -- to talk about the senate and congressional and presidential races. is this kind of technique that was owned and endorsed by the supreme court and so on in this election, presidential election, going to have any effect on issue c
because he was the chief backer of the rick santorum super pac. i interviewed him in february and asked about taxes, do you think rich people should pay more taxes? he said people don't realize how well the people self tax. there's a fellow who is ceo of target. recreated a museum of music. he put in $200 million of his own money. i have another friend to give $400 million to a facility in south dakota or someplace like that. look at bill gates to gave $750 million to fight aids. we should get rid of taxes as much as we can because you get to decide how you spend your money rather than the government. if you have a certain cause, an art museum and want to support it it would be nice to have the choice to support it. where we are headed you will be taxed, your money taken away and the government will support it. it is a question. do you believe the government should be taking your money and spending it for you or do you want to spend it for you. you went on to say actually, it is absurd to tax the reproductive billionaire guys because of everything they do for us. if you look at what ste
, former communications director for rick santor santorum's presidential campaign. karen, start with you, the full-court press of obama voters ramping up to fiscal cliff talks, out with a new report today showing the impact, losing middle class tax cuts and even the thought of it could have on holiday shopping and spending. combine that with the new poll showing the majority of americans, 45%, would blame the gop and congress and not the president if these fiscal cliff talks fail. are we seeing a white house not willing to lose this pr war no matter the outcome of the talks? >> i think you're seeing a gop that has yet to accept the election results, sort of negotiating with themselves about what they will and won't accept without acknowledging the polls you just cited and the other thing is a strong majority actually also wants a deal. they want a compromise, a balanced compromise. as the republicans are negotiating with themselves over here, the administration and the rest of america is kind of in another place and i think the administration rightly so and remember this was an issue whe
, mike huckabee or rick santorum and none of them can win. >> let me play real quick, a.b., this conversation between ann coulter and laura ingram, again, trying to in their minds figure out what happened with governor romney. let me play it. >> if mitt romney cannot win in this economy, then the tips point habben reached. we have more takers than makers and it's over. >> i'm sorry, this is going to sound cruel, but some of the times i didn't like he was connecting with the material. i think you have to connect with the material. maybe it's people who have actually been in the trenches for decades, not just someone that was a success in business. >> in the trenches like a community organizer and not just a business guy? i mean, what is -- we in some kind of topsy-turvy world now suddenly his business background was nothing? >> there's a lot of rationalizing going on on the republican side because the win was much bigger than -- if they thought that obama was going to beat romney, that he would eek it out and they did not expect 303 and possible 332 electoral vote fs obam
santorum and mike huckabee. thank you both for joining me. >> thank you. >> thank you, reverend. >> what ails the party, in your opinion? >> i think we haven't reached out, and i think gale marriage is trending, and for whatever reason, this obsession with social issue says killing us. it was a difficult night, and one of the most popular things i've ever tweeted, and i think this is a harsh reality that we're facing right now. but i'm not shocked or surprised. i knew this when my father lost. i've been ostracized from my party, that i've discussed this with you before. if you're not going to start accepting people like me, this party is going to die. >>> now, hogan, let me first start with the same question. what in your opinion is ailing your party? >> i think really one of the stats from election night shocked me. it was george h.w. bush won 60% of the white vote in 1988. me got over 400 electoral votes. mitt romney did the same thing. he got crushed. i think there are three reasons this thing went so badly. one is because we have some type of -- we have decided either to ignore or to
republicans. michele bachmann wouldn't have won last night. rick santorum wouldn't have won last night. here is where the problem comes in. the republics need a conservative with charisma. and it's got to be the kind of candidate who is smart enough to explain to these groups like women, latinos, young voters, and they have to stop this bible-based bashing of gay people. they have to bring these people in without, without seeing out their conservative principles. >> bill: that's of the hard part because young single women in order to get them in the tent many of them you have got to throw the abortion issue out the wind doe. that's a core fundamental belief you can't do. >> that's the problem. any time -- you are absolutely right. absolutely. abortion should be thrown out the window, not as an issue but, you could still be pro-life and say, hey, this is not one of the things i'm going to be talking about during the campaign. you don't sell out your pro-life principles but you don't make abortion a big issue because there are too many women out there who say, you know, there is war on women.
the same thing, but they had to fight a primary, deal with newt gingrich, rick santorum, rick perry and fight for 15 months before they look up in may and say, okay, now we have to open field offices. the obama field offices were there for a year and a half. multiple ones in every one of these states and they were out there meeting these voters almost on an individual basis. these weren't just numbers. they were human beings -- >> you can't get elected on the young vote. i looked at the numbers, and these numbers of young voters were better than last time for obama. who would have predicted that. >> well, they went -- and they also -- they had time to change the makeup of the electorate. in the state of florida, they went and registered new voters. they registered these folks. look at the state of ohio. all of the pollster conspiracy, polling conspiracy theorists would say no way democrats are going to have a party i.d. advantage of six, seven, eight points in the state of ohio. well, they had a seven-point advantage. that wasn't -- that didn't just happen. they went and got it done
santorum all be crowned somebody who is going to get the nomination for the republican party. didn't happen. nobody picked paul ryan. nobody knew the momentum was going to swing on the first debate. so all we can do is expect the unexpected. i think that stay tuned, it will be very anti-climatic for this to go as planned. >> ben smith, where do you think the real battleground will be? a lot of people are talking about ohio, pennsylvania, florida. the democrats still saying it could not go romney's way, all these things could be pivotal to how the election washes up. where will you be focused tomorrow night? >> look, mitt romney has -- obama has a lot of paths to victory. romney has very few. they will be states like virginia, florida. if obama wins those states, pretty much over. romney needs to run the table and do well in ohio and pennsylvania. those are must-wins for him. >> charles, when you look at both campaigns from start to finish, what do you think has run the better campaign? >> i think that this campaign has been what most campaigns are, a series of ups and downs for both sides,
'm surprised that santorumed you. >> i forgot the east. i had the north. >> we have the name nor'easter. >> don't test me the day after election day. y the first use was way back in the 1600s with a brit, sailor who mentioned the wind coming out of the north and east. i want to show you an incredible picture of a neater this. was the blizzard of 2006. look how it took almost a tropical characteristic. see the eye developing there off the delmarva peninsula. these storms ride along a gulf stream so they get that warm, moist energy and then they cap into arctic air off it the north and west. that is why we often see the terrible effects we do. the coastal erosion. >> that is how we get our big winter weather. >> when we get our big storms, that is what happened. let's go back to max 2. the nor'easter for today, i want to mention some of the effects of this one. we are sort of on the southwestern side of this one today so the worst effect will be to you are on north. 40 to 50-mile an hour wind gust along the coast, high surf, coastal flooding. again, in the winter months, if this were january, feb
santorum do well in iowa. i don't think obama or romney are well suited to iowa. did i just say ohio? i meant iowa. >> iowa. >> anyway, i don't think eat of those candidates are particularly well suited because there's a strong populace strain in iowa politics. i ultimately do have it going blue if you look at the polls. romney has never led in iowa, interestingly even though as you pointsed out the democrats held a slight advantage in voting in registration numbers in 2008. they are turning out the same number in terms of early votes. they have a 60,000 vote advantage this year at this time versus in 2008 which is the same. so i think ultimately it is going to go to president obama. >> i have it going red but, again, i think we put up that chart of presidential voting history since 1972 it's picked republican president five times, a democrat president five times. guess this is like the rubber match. just quickly want to note that yesterday i laid down some smack is what i did. >> a group smack down. >> i spoke for the group. yes. when i made some intimidating remarks. take a look. wit
? the answer will be, the other choices were rick perry, newt gingrich, rick santorum. at the end of the day, the tea party had spoken. so they nominated mitt romney. >> you heard maher joking that romney is so out of touch he's from outer space. check out this tweet from john kerry. quote, surprised to run into mitt in ohio, a snapshot of some makeshift robot. and actor will farrell stepped up his campaign for obama in a new web video with a list of questionable incentives to encourage people to vote. >> if you agree to vote in this year's election i will personally give you a tattoo. fair warning, i do not know how to draw. i'll do a dance just for you. that was just a taste. if you want the full buffet, you're going to have to vote. if you vote, i'll eat anything you tell me to. garbage, hair, human under -- human toe nails. underpants. i don't care. vote obama. it's a slam dunk. i made you this. it's an owl. who, who. >> convinced? up next, clinton the closer. if president obama wins on tuesday night, he can thank former president bill clinton. he may be the one to push president obama o
cold weather. we were all there with him. john mccain i mean, , rick santorum, rick perry, rudy guiliani cockade bailey hutchison, derek , the champion and olympic skater, i mean, just a whole -- bob macdonald. the great governor of ohio. we just had a great event. the crowd was going -- they were going crazy. it was unbelievable, the support and standing out there and that whether to hear mitt romney. gerri: a critical state and a critical region for the candidate. absolutely true. i have -- i think one of the biggest surprise is the democratic party has done our seniors in florida. a recent poll shows romney with 57 percent of seniors in florida. obama 40% with something that you just could not have predicted because people thought that paul ryan's plan for medicare, medicaid was going tax absolutely put of seniors. what happened? >> well, they have been spreading their message. all over florida. wonderful everywhere. a senior living in florida. $760 billion from the medicare system. and seniors are recognizing that. recognizing what is going to happen. small businesses are re
get a long-overdue pay raise just to in just to inflation. if you have rick santorum and mitt romney saying the minimum wage should be ingested, that would put pressure on them. >> let me ask you this. do you think the people are as tired of the notion of government could do something? we have seen a little bang for the buck. a lot of people are going the other way. they are ceful to go that way because they remember republicans. but is there a limit to what the government can do? would you say that cars being made safely, and they say, you know, government can't make an economy as a whole. >> they don't have much power. we have to demand more from big business. neil: will the government demand that? >> business can hardly keep up with the corporate climb. balays, jpmorgan chase, now, wasko, 3 billion-dollar fine. we have to save these corporations. they were built on t backs of american workers. build buildout by american taxpayers. recording record profits. sitting on trillions of dollars, keing them away from their owners a the investors and the workers. neil: are you saying that
friess or whatever his name is, helping rick santorum. santorum would have been out of their along time before. kept the process going longer and a prolonged the period of time where romney had to move to the right in order to nail down the nomination and made it more difficult, more awkward for him to tack back towards the center to win the general election. and if you were going to say to issues, and one of them probably may not be fair. the auto bailout, i am not sure how much of that was political of conservatives just not liking governmental interference or how much of it was you know a harvard is the school, a harvard law school guy who thought bankruptcy, getting and all the car company out of their contract with the union, i mean where technically actually really thought that would have been a better route in a long-term bet for the auto companies, it may not have been political but that's the weaker of the two. and then there was immigration. you can't tell me that mitt romney from three or four years ago would have had any intention to go and strike as he did on immigration an
santorum type person and that's the problem which is absolutely not their problem, or will they get it and say if we have a condition who has to pretend he's not a raeving right winger to get elected in -- maybe that says something about your policies and ideas are not where the country is. maybe, you know, idea of cooperation shouldn't be a dirty word. >> maybe. >> maybe. >> maybe. but i -- >> i don't know. >> those overly optimistic. >> unfortunately, given what we've seen in washington where you have many good, moderate republicans who have been too cowardly to stand up to the tea partiers, i think it's more likely the right wing will win out. it's bad for the country. >> who knows. i guarantee you they'll nominate someone without a car elevator. >> you are resident of the tri-state area, a johnny come lately to the tri-state area. >> a ferner. >> 2016, governor andrew cuomo versus governor chris christie, what do you think about that? >> what do you think about them apples? >> an incredible race. governor cuomo taking a lead role. >> an amazing thing. they'd personally stamp doi
he had his back to the wall with rick perry, newt gingrich, rick santorum, you saw this sort of pattern. the fact checker at the waup has been -- "washington post" has been able to quantify this and he's at newt gingrich levels of honesty. >> oh, my goodness. >> president obama has gotten his share of pinocchios as well, but he's well within the range of normal politics. what romney has been doing here seems to be on a whole other plane, and that is to take something that is known to be false, it's been demonstrated to be false, retreat from it and go right back out and do it again. >> it's brilliant. toure, i mentioned earlier the fear that's been caused by these romney falsehoods about these workers losing their jobs. let's listen to how the president responded to that. >> you've got folks who work at the jeep plant who have been calling their employers worried asking is it true, are our jobs being shipped to china? and the reason they're making these calls is because governor romney has been running an ad that says so. >> how are we supposed to trust a person who wants to
saying oh, we should have nominated santorum. but it's obviously a more complicated problem for them than that. and it's going to be, again, if indeed the president is re-elected, the republican arguments afterward are going to be fascinating. >> you know what they need? they need an impassioned centrist in the republican party that can speak from his or her loins. i just wanted to say the word loins again for everybody watching this broadcast. after the break, despite its well documented issues courting the women's vote, team romney lately has been pushing a narrative that has closed the gender gap. we'll have cecil richards to unpack the myth when we return live to democracy plaza, next on "now." [ male announcer ] you like who you are... and you learned something along the way. this is the age of knowing what you're made of. so, why let erectile dysfunction get in your way? talk to your doctor about viagra. 20 million men already have. ask if your heart is healthy enough for sex. do not take viagra if you take nitrates for chest pain; it may cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. side
caucuses identify themselves as evangelicals. they supported rick santorum over romney, many uneasy on romney's past on issues like abortion and his mormon faith. >> but that was then. you said the romney campaign snubbed social conservatives. >> i think he has proved to himself that he's tried to make that out reach to social conservatives as well as economic conservatives. he's daone a good job here in iowa. >> iowa's evangelical voters seem to have moved into mitt romney's camp. the president may place more of a challenge. the catholic voters we spoke with here are split over issues like abortion, funding for contraception, and the government's role in providing for the poor. >> the life issues which many catholics, most catholics, hold dear and central to their faith, but then there's this belief that remains that the democratic party somehow cares for the poor better. i think it comes down to that tension. >> reporter: how big a role does your catholic religion play in your vote? >> i think it's big. i'm an ex-nun. and the group of nuns i'm associated with to this day are pushi
huckabee and rick santorum and others who are thinking about running for president next time. people are going to have to choose up sides and if president obama is leading those negotiations it's going to be an obama deal so for a lot of republicans in congress and around the country they're against it no matter what. they don't care what percentage of the vote he got, how big his mandate is, they'll be against it because it will have revenue in it, new revenue, and they'll be against it. >> rose: because it is -- that vote is influenced by how they perceive the battle they are making for the control of the republican party? >> and they don't like him and anything he stands for and his victory won't change that. and choosing up sides there will tell you a lot about how people are going to approach going forward the next four years of an obama presidency and the fight to redefine the republican party. >> it's going to be -- i mean, regardless of what happens tomorrow i think we come out of this pretty much where we went into it and that's what makes it very disheartening, frankly, as
of mitt romney versus his primary supporter rick santorum. evangelical voters weren't as supportive of mitt romney early on. there were class divides. we're looking at the demographic data because that's one thing the president's team has made clear they're relying on to turn out the vote for him, the demographic groups that tend to back him. younger voters, african-americans, younger women. they do really inform the types of people you're out to get at the polls. sometimes, for example, there's the health care... 50% of voters favored repealing some or all of obama care. that shows it's a divided country but that doesn't suggest who will win tonight. >> i think we ought to em fa that these exit polls have been done for many years. we have had trouble in some years. i don't expect there will be trouble this year. those of us in this business that have been doing it understand that we have to treat these very tentative lie and at the end of the day people are voting to elect the next wt and the next congress. we're really going to wait for those results to go in. these give us a litt
to support rick santorum in 2016. >> good old foster freeze. that's wonderful. karl rove's career as you know better than anyone has had its fair share of ups and downs. there was the victory in 2004 and then the scandal involving valerie plame but has there been a lower point in his career than right now. >> i think he would say the valerie plame scenario was probably lower on a personal level and the implosion of the bush coalition. i think what you will see now is the donors themselves can now split. there really is disagreement within the donors about what strategic direction to take the republican party. you have the koch brothers, purist embracing of the tea party, the mantra wing. and then you have a more mainstream hedge fund centered donor base which really are pushing more towards like layoff these social issues, let's try to broaden the coalition. i think that's the discussion that's going to happen in the outside of the party class. the outcome of that will have a huge impact on how congress behaves, on how the primary process goes next time, and who vent the republican nominee is
not to run for president in 2012. but friends of the tea party like newt gingrich, rick santorum, herman cain, rick perry and michele bachmann did. i caught up with bachmann at the state fair in 2010. she was running for re-election for congress and was at the height of her influence. >> i don't take it for granted. i don't take any election for granted. thank you. >> reporter: in 2012 not only did her support drop quickly in the presidential race, she barely won her congressional race this week. it was worse for two other tea party favorites. todd akin lost his senate race in missouri. his effort not helped by this comment. >> if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. >> reporter: and richard mourdock lost his senate race in indiana after he said this. >> even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that god intended to happen. >> reporter: the tea party's anti-government message continues to resonate with many. but arguably, the group's policies and miscues might have cost the gop a chance to be the majority p
home, governor. and people like gingrich and santorum were warning about that last year. it's always easy to look back and hindsight is 2020. a lot of them were concerned that a more establishment type like mitt romney would not do that type of aggressive messaging on conservative issues that, for instance, won in 2010. and that have been so successful in various governors races as well. >> two things i want to mention. first, i do want to say i think mitt romney gave it his very best. he worked hard, he worked his heart out. i have got no criticisms of mitt romney. if anybody would want to criticize mitt romney. he was my opponent four years ago when we both ran. you know, i can probably find a way to do it. i'm not going to. i worked hard for him because he was the nominee. i think that's what we do as republicans. once we get a nominee. we close in the ranks and we help him. >> he also learned from campaigns that failed. he didn't get as many of the mormon vote as john mccain did, governor. i mean -- >> -- i don't understand that. >> laura: we're beyond kind of niceties at this po

that michele bachmann or rick perry, or rick santorum didn't was running a personal candidacy. he didn't come in at the head of some movement, with ideological points to prove. what he believed i think and certainly what his campaign staff believed, was the country was heading down a terrible trajectory, it required a man of profound competition to fix, and he was going to present himself as somebody who was more competent than president obama in his closing argument, he said repeatedly to voters in wisconsin and new hampshire and virginia, you don't have to settle. what's holding us back from being a great nation is a lack of leadership. there is something both moving and ultimately very thin about the alternative that mitt romney presented because it was based so much on the promise of himself. >> yeah. the humanity, be we were talking about that -- what was supposed to be a victory celebration gone horly, horribly wrong, the sense they were on the precipes the golden ring was within their grasp and snatched at the very last minute was not something they were prepared for. >> not at all. as
director for rick santorum's presidential campaign. great to have you here and ruth, petraeus now testifying or will be testifying on capitol hill. does this bring it all back to the original story and the attention and focus where it needs to be about what happened in benghazi, the loss of four american diplomats and away from this salacious sexual scandal. >> i think you answered your own question. i say this with a bit of regret and also a bit of humor, as between dealing with serious substantive questions whether it's benghazi or the fiscal cliff and salacious sexual scandal, i know which we think is going to get the attention and especially this story which is developing into some combination of real housewives of centcom meets "homeland," it's just too sordidly delicious not to have us spending, us in the immediate yashgs spending some time figuring out what in the heck was going on here. i do have to say i really think there are a lot of important questions to be dealt with at the news conference beyond the petraeus matter. there's not a lot that the president can say or ad
of rick santorum. i don't know why he think its is an urgent national security issue and why the republican party is doubling down on issues like this. it is a serious moral position. i think the fact on this issue the country is closely divided, and there is no evidence to suggest that it would disqualify the elected president of the united states but surely we must understand the position. particularly suburban and young women do not want to hear lectures on contraception from old white republicans. we are the women in government party. we see it too often from the leadership in washington a version of big conservatism where the government is peering through the windows into matters of sexual orientation, lifestyle choices and contraception. when you have people talking about the individual mandate and screaming about tyrany and we are on 1,000 years of darkness. at the same time we are voting in people in state legislatures that are mandating -- it does not add up or make sense and it is being rejected and it will continue to be rejected across the country. if you look at

things, rick santorum saying whatever he said about blah people. so the party was saying this about black people, about brown people, self-deportation, these sort of things. when they're saying it about barack obama, black people and brown people read it as about themselves, that barack obama is not american enough, he's lazy, playing too much golf. >> john? >> the point i was going to jump off something toure said about president george w. bush. i remember during that campaign every day on the front page of the newspaper there was a picture of george bush hugging a black child, usually a very beautiful black child every day. and it got to the point where it was like what's he communicating? and the communication was, remember, his whole campaign was about compassionate conservatism. >> thank you so much. >>> next, say it ain't so, allen west throws in the towel and the comedy gods are very sad. stay with us. >> let's be very honest and let's put it in some military vernacular. if you're feeding a person a crap sandwich with a smile, it's still a crap sandwich and i think that's what you
with the gop going forward? >> i think paul ryan and rick santorum and a number of other candidates who certainly are going to be viable players going forward are also names to watch. but i think that the party standard bearer will likely be somebody who's able to reach a broad coalition going forward. more than just conservatives. and the republican base. whoever it is has to reach a lot more folks. >> yeah. so margie, chris christie, always being talked about for this. does his embrace of the president during hurricane sandy, do you think that hurts or helps him, in tells of both getting a nomination, and then being elected? because that can be two different things. >> i'm a new jersey native. and my stepfather has the same sort of new jersey attitude that chris christie has. i think that attitude, sometimes can be hurtful for chris christie in the case of hurricane sandy, it was really helpful to show he was going to say it like it is. which is, i'm here to help the people in new jersey, rather than play politics. i don't think it cost mitt romney the election at all. i think it's fo

. i think his difficulties began a long time ago and that was in the form of rick santorum and rick perry and newt gingrich forcing him to become a much more conservative candidate than he needed to be or presumably wanted to be but what he had to do to win the nomination and what we've seen in the last six months or so since then is his efforts somewhat halting to walk away from all of that. now, the election is -- people are still voting right now. this man could still be the next president. we have to keep that in mind but it's been a torturous route to get to this evening. >> indeed. ari, we talk about mitt romney as a character, but people say you can tell a man by the company he keeps. if i introduced you to a man who is endorsed by individuals as grotesque as donald rumtrump, a poison us as john sununu would you say that man was on the way to the white house or is that the kabs of a snuff movie. >> the problem was the clown car of the republican party, that was the sort of first test of mitt romney's ability to stand up for himself and his own record, and then as you say, in
's unlikely. there's two big problems. one is what rick santorum said during the primary campaign was right. that actually room any is the worst republican candidate to run against barack obama. secondly, there's the issue of president obama has run an incredibly effective campaign with the exception of the first debate, his campaign is effective in targeting mitt romney from the beginning and they painted him into a corner and held his positions against him. now the mathematically it's difficult for romney to win right now. this is not just a question about nate silver and everybody else. obama is leading in seven of the nine swing states. romney has to win at least five of those swing states in order to win the election. he's nowhere near that right now. so in order for romney to win, almost all of the swing state polls have to be almost completely wrong, and that's unlikely. >> let me read what "the new york times" put in their article today. as the night unfolds, clues to the outcome will spill out. if exit polling indicates that mr. romney is exceeding the share of white vote that went

it was april 10th when rick santorum dropped out, they decided focus, discipline, we are going to in i day or dollar spent -- any day or dollar spent talking about anything other than obama or the economy was a day or dollar wasted. their view. that's almost word for word quote from one of their top strategists. when i asked this question back in june. and so they focused just entirely up until just before the convention on banging on economy and obama when the thing about it is, yes, to a certain extent when you have an incumbent president running for election, yes, it is a referendum on the incumbent. and it is a referendum in part on the economy and the state of the economy. but the thing about it is you've got to define your own candidate in a way n a positive way -- in a positive way, biographical advertising, testimonial advertising, you have to make them a real, three-dimensional, trustworthy individual, someone that, i mean, think of the boy scout oath. that's the general idea. i'm sure girl scouts have the same, something like that. that's the general thing you want to get across
